after playing about 8 hours with Launch4J I stopped because there was no success.Than I tried Install4J, it works, but the uninstaller dont work . But Install4J is no way for me , because I will not buy Install4J.
No my quick and dirty solution is, to call the startup.bat file from the bin directory with a little C programm. This exe I can link on the Desktop, and so it looks like an normal programm for the User.
I am not very happy with this solution, but it works.
That’s an issue with the latest build of install4j. Happened to me too. I then uninstalled install4j and found an older version on Google, compiled and BAM! Works like a charm. Now I’m trying to use launch4j and Advanced Installer to create a free installation. No such luck as of yet.
